Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch “Apollo XVII” 45th Anniversary Limited Edition 42mm 318.104.22.168.03.001
The legendary OMEGA Speedmaster was launched in 1957, soon establishing itself as one of the world’s most famous chronographs. Having been worn and trusted on all six moon landings, from the iconic first in July 1969, to the significant last in December 1972, the Speedmaster earned the nickname “the Moonwatch”. Commanded by Eugene Ceran, Apollo 17 was the last manned mission to touch down, with Eugene Caran becoming the last man to walk on the moon. To commemorate the 45th anniversary of this historic voyage, OMEGA have released the stupendous Speedmaster Moonwatch “Apollo XVII”. Limited to 272 pieces, you can own a truly rare Speedmaster Moonwatch.
The 42mm casing is crafted out of 18ct yellow gold and features a blue ceramic bezel with its tachymeter scale in OMEGA Ceragold™. The blue dial is also made from ceramic with 18ct yellow gold indexes, hour & minute hands that are coated in Super-LumiNova.
The three subdial hands are again crated from 18ct yellow gold while the central chronograph hand is gold-plated with a red tip. A unique image of the God Apollo, the moon and the number 17 can be found in the 9 o’clock subdial. Printed in red is “05:34 GMT” indicating the time that the final step on the moon was made. Finished on a brown leather strap with an 18ct yellow gold clasp.
Powered by the iconic OMEGA calibre 1861, supplying the Speedmaster Moonwatch “Apollo XVII” with a power reserve of 48 hours. The detailed caseback that protects this self-winding movement is engraved with “45 ANNIVERSARY”, “Limited Edition” and the unique edition number. Mounted centrally is a 18ct white gold medallion embossed with an eagle, “Apollo XVII” and “a tribute to Gene Ceran”.
